Description

World famous tenor Christoph Prégardien continues his series of recordings for Challenge Classics of Schubert song-cycles, with what many consider to be the composer's greatest work in the genre "Winterreise". As with the previous critically acclaimed release of "Die Schone Mullerin" the pianist on this hybrid SACD is Michael Gees.

Christoph Prégardien has made almost 200 recordings for all the major labels, amongst which are several for Challenge Classics. These include recordings released in 2008 of Schubert's "Die Schone Mullerin" with Michael Gees, which was a Gramophone Editor's Choice, and the same composer's "Schwanengesang" with Andreas Staier. Prégardien and Gees also released the award winning 'Between Life and Death' in 2009, which featured songs and arias by composers including Mahler, Schubert, Schumann, Wolf, Brahms, and Mozart.

This recording of Winterreise is also available on DVD and Blu-ray, featuring a studio performance of the cycle, and a documentary with artist interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of the studio recording process.

Personnel: Christoph Prégardien (tenor), Michael Gees (piano)
